Day 98/365: We live near a river and I have always been envious of these beautiful birds that visit this yard every Spring. I have wanted to stop and photograph these birds for years and years... Today actually gave me a real reason to just do it. It makes me wonder why I have never taken the time to in the past. (Oh wait; I'm a wife and mom of three - that must be why I haven't taken the time before). :) Anyway, these majestic birds didn't give me a lot of opportunity. I am on the other side of the river here, which is probably about 50-60 yards away from them, but I still startled them. I didn't even get a good shot of them flying away because I was behind a lot of foliage. The time spent was worth it today - and even though I'm not entirely happy with this shot - I am very glad I had a reason to go and pull over for a while.
